Hamilton, New Ze...
I made this bow tie for my boyfriend Oliver when we went to my university ball back in July 2011. I wore a long green maxi skirt and my fur waistcoat I made. He wore the tuxedo jacket I bought him for Christmas 2010 and my bowler hat.
Our masks were made from lace and tulle, and mine was specially hard to get right.
I made the bow tie from some left over satin from a previous ball dress and used elastic as the band for round the neck.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
